US fired tear gas into Mexico early on New Years Day

Nancy Pelosi: The remarkable comeback of America’s most powerful woman

US border agents launched tear gas into Mexico early on Tuesday to deter a group of migrants that one official called "a violent mob" from crossing over from Tijuana, according to a Reuters witness and the usa government. It affected the migrants, including women and children, as well as members of the press.

The Customs and Border Protection release said agents and officers deployed smoke, pepper spray and CS gas to address the rock throwers, who they said were assaulting border agents and also risking the safety of migrants who had already made it onto the US side.

Clouds of the noxious gas could be seen wafting up from around the fence at the border. More than half of them died while trying to cross the border into southeastern Texas, between Laredo and Brownsville, and the counties to the north, and 48 of the deaths occurred only in Brooks County, which is about 130 kilometers north of the US-Mexican border between Texas and Mexico. The AP saw rocks thrown only after USA agents fired the tear gas.

Thousands of Central American migrants have been camping at shelters in Tijuana since arriving in November after travelling in caravans across Mexico to reach the US border, where many have hoped to request asylum.

The media described "clouds of noxious gas" that could be "seen wafting from around the fence at the border", where an immigrant "picked up a canister and threw it back into US territory".

It is the second time since November that border officers have used tear gas during an attempted mass migrant crossing in the San Diego area.

Border patrol officers responded by firing smoke, pepper spray and tear gas at the rock throwers in Mexico, distinguishing them from those who were trying to cross the fence line, CBP said.

Pelosi: We're Giving 'Nothing for the Wall'
The Democrats have sworn he will " never " get any of it. "We have given the Republicans a chance to take yes for an answer". But with Trump dug in over the $5 billion he wants to build the wall, the shutdown could drag on.

Border Patrol, migrants clash at border
However, an Associated Press photographer said they saw rocks thrown only after United States agents fired the tear gas. Trump is now locked in a fight with congressional Democrats over funding for the border wall that he wants to build.

A Nasa spacecraft has performed a flyby of the most distant, and very possibly the most ancient, object ever watched by mankind. May says Alan Stern , the Project Instigator of the NASA Mission, who approached him in May about writing a special song.

Most of the migrants returned to Mexico using a hole under the fence or by climbing over it, CBP said, adding 25 people including two teenage migrants were detained.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a statement that about 45 migrants got through the first layer of fencing but turned back when they saw the border patrol's presence early Tuesday.

Agents 'used the minimum force necessary, ' Katie Waldman, a spokeswoman for the department of homeland security, said in a statement. CBP said 42 people were arrested on the U.S. side.

Numerous migrants are waiting in Tijuana for a chance to apply for asylum in the US, but there was a backlog before the caravan's arrival and the wait is expected to be many months.

They arrived here in Tijuana in early November and today about 1,500 still remain.

President Trump, top Democrats and top Republicans appear no closer to building bridges as Mr. Trump continues to demand funding for his border wall. He has also made it harder for people to request asylum at the frontier.
